Halloween Mantle Decor

Sophisticated Halloween Fireplace Decorations Decor Inspired by The Birds (2)

This year I decided to tame down the Halloween decorations and only keep them to the living room fireplace mantle. No plastic, orange pumpkins, spider webs or bat silhouettes. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those things and get super gitty when I start to see the Halloween aisles appear in the stores, but I thought I would go a bit more sophisticated this time around. And just to clarify, I don’t have children, I decorate for Halloween just for me :)

I was inspired by “The Birds” since I just went to Bodega Bay, where the movie was filmed, and these faux crows feel a bit Edgar Allen Poe-ish, so no spiders this year, just birds. I also added in some of these long stemmed squash guys because their stems are pretty creepy. Candy bowls are filled in the house and I’m ready to get my Halloween on. What about you? Do you know what you’re gonna be yet? Hashtag sexy ghost?

Bodega Bay

Things to do in Bodega Bay Day Trips from SF (4)

One of the many reasons why I love living in SF is the accessibility to explore so many places outside the city. Whether it be a day trip or a long weekend trip, there are quite a few places to visit and I’m trying to cross as many as possible off my list. Some friends and I (and Greta the “service dog”) spent a relaxing weekend in Bodega Bay which is about an hour and  a half north of the city. We rented the cutest little cottage…

It’s October

Fall Autumn Flower Arrangement Bouquet

It’s the start of a new month which always signifies a renewal of goals for me. You’ll be seeing a new collection of footstools along with more frequent additions to the shop, more rescued and re-loved furniture (I’ve missed doing this), a quarterly newsletter delivered to your inbox (if you’d like to be added to my email list please sign up on the homepage or comment below), hopefully some better updates on the design projects I’m working on (I’m the worst at this), and since the holidays are just around the corner you’ll be seeing more crafts (I’ve finally recovered from wedding crafting and ready to join the crafting community again). And flowers! You’ll be seeing more arranegments since flowers make me beyond happy. I’ve got a pretty good excuse to have them around more often so stay tuned. Happy October!
